Transcript of Crayola Marker Life Cycle

Crayola Marker Life Cycle Raise and Extract Main components include plastic, cotton, and a water based dye solution
Plastic is made from crude oil extracted from the ground
Water is simply extracted from lakes and wells
Cotton is grown and harnessed through mechanical means (ie: various machinery) Process Crude oil is heated with other organic compounds such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen to make plastic
Cotton is processed by cotton gin to separate fiber from seeds
Water is processed to remove impurities Recycle Only the color barrel can be recycled
Remove cap before recycling
Collected in a large container where plastic is melted
Hot liquid plastic travels into high temp. reactor which breaks long molecular chains into shorter ones
Shorter molecules become gas or vapor and float out of reactor into cold chamber
Vapor is cooled to room temp. and turns into a clean-burning liquid fuel
Can be used to heat a home, run a car, or cook food
Plastic scraps from making marker casings are crushed into tiny pellets and put back into the system Manufacture Barrel is molded from plastic resin and screen printed.
Cotton-like filament that holds the ink is inserted into the end barrel
Plastic plug is inserted at one end of barrel
Inject ink at other end of barrel using a needle
Tip (writing nib) is inserted in this same end
Plastic cap is placed on the marker
